We took a mini family vacation this week, and have had a blast!
If you haven't checked them out, Wilderness in the Smokies is a great place to go! They run specials that make it really affordable, and with it being the off season, we had the park to ourselves (well not totally, but there were very few people).
The waterpark has a great little grill (where surprisingly, there were options for our dairy-free kid), 4 water slides, a wave pool, a surf station, and two other "playset" areas for kiddos! It is always fun to go!
